=head1 NAME

Pod::Simple::PullParserTextToken -- text-tokens from Pod::Simple::PullParser


(See L<Pod::Simple::PullParser>)


When you do $parser->get_token on a L<Pod::Simple::PullParser>, you might
get an object of this class.

This is a subclass of L<Pod::Simple::PullParserToken> and inherits all its methods,
and adds these methods:


=item $token->text

This returns the text that this token holds.  For example, parsing
CZ<><foo> will return a C start-token, a text-token, and a C end-token.  And
if you want to get the "foo" out of the text-token, call C<< $token->text >>

=item $token->text(I<somestring>)

This changes the string that this token holds.  You probably won't need
to do this.

=item $token->text_r()

This returns a scalar reference to the string that this token holds.
This can be useful if you don't want to memory-copy the potentially
large text value (well, as large as a paragraph or a verbatim block)
as calling $token->text would do.

Or, if you want to alter the value, you can even do things like this:

  for ( ${  $token->text_r  } ) {  # Aliases it with $_ !!

    s/ The / the /g; # just for example

    if( 'A' eq chr(65) ) {  # (if in an ASCII world)
      tr/\xA0/ /;

    ...or however you want to alter the value...
    (Note that starting with Perl v5.8, you can use, e.g.,

        my $nbsp = chr utf8::unicode_to_native(0xA0);
        s/$nbsp/ /g;

    to handle the above regardless if it's an ASCII world or not)


You're unlikely to ever need to construct an object of this class for
yourself, but if you want to, call
Pod::Simple::PullParserTextToken->new( I<text> )
